Most books on Jehovah's Witnesses are critiques, either by ex-members or by evangelical Christians who seek to demonstrate the falsity of their beliefs. A small handful of books seek to be more objective, but are now outdated, on account of recent changes in the Watch Tower organisation.
Jehovah's Witnesses: Continuity and Change is a ground-breaking study of the Watch Tower Bible and Tract Society, exploring its origins in 19th century Adventism, and tracing its development from its inception to the present day.
The book is neither a critique of the organisation nor a defence of its beliefs and practices. The book seeks to explore the Witnesses' lifestyle, their understanding of the Bible and biblical prophecy, and their ways of serving Jehovah.
